Famous quotes containing the word girl:

    Surely spring will allow
    a girl without a stitch on
    to turn softly in her sunlight
    and not be afraid of her bed.

    Oh Lolita, you are my girl, as Vee was Poe’s and Bea Dante’s, and what little girl would not like to whirl in a circular skirt and scanties?
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    The bed is ravaged by such
    sweet sights. The girl is.
    The girl drifts up out of
    her nightgown and its color.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
